Laura Dekker eat your heart out!!!!
This is me with mummy and daddy offshore on the boat. Daddy thinks I might be able to do the Sydney to Hobart when I'm 2 and then he hopes that I can become a highly successful and well payed America's Cup Helmsman in my tween years so that Daddy can just retire and play lots of golf.

This is me looking at that big archy thing for the first time.

This is me discussing the finer points of sail trim with daddy at anchor.

Lucky Baby:)

Enjoy that time with the kids. It will roll faster than you can imagine and before you realize it they will be adults with their own live.

Chall she is beautiful dude. And it's good to see you already have her taking the 4-8am watch.

Enjoy that baby!

I say put that baby to work!

Do you normally allow your crew to sleep on watch? The cute ones get away with anything.

Way to start'em young! Nice pics all round!

Seriously cute CH, she obviously coped with it all rather well. Looks like a windless trip down ? Weather can be wonderful this time of year but not much good for sailing.

Yeah in an attempt to put crew and boat through their paces offshore we headed down last weekend and the mighty Tasman Sea was more like the proverbial mill pond without even a hint of breeze!

Trip back was bit better, a steady 10-15.
